PAVILLON RICHELIEU

Pavillon Richelieu is one of the wings of the Louvre Museum that defines the Cour Napoléon. There is a colonnade and a covered walkway with arches and columns along the inside of the court. Between the columns are eighteen long stone benches. When I saw my wife relaxing on one of the benches, I noticed that nearly all of the other benches were occupied as well, each in its own space separated by the massive columns.

The photographs that I made show a similar but distinct background with people in different positions occupying each space. It is about form and gesture, but for me it is also about the static rigid architectural forms compared to the ever-changing human forms within the space.
